This potsticker sauce is salty, spicy, tangy and perfect for dipping Asian dumplings, gyoza, potstickers, egg rolls, wontons, mandoo or anything else!
As you’ll see in our video, you can even make this tasty sauce for potstickers in under a minute.
WHY MAKE HOMEMADE POTSTICKER DIPPING SAUCE
If you’ve been buying bottled potsticker sauce, you might be feeding your family ingredients you’re not even aware of. Most of them have high fructose corn syrup as the first ingredient, and some even have artificial coloring and preservatives.
You’re also paying a lot more than it would cost to simply make your own potsticker sauce. This potsticker recipe typically costs me 40 cents to make, and serves 6-8 as a sauce. That means just 6-8 cents per serving!
To save money on the sauce, get your Asian ingredients at an Asian grocery store, and get your spices in bulk. Some grocery stores have a bulk spice section or you can usually find large containers at bulk stores like Costco.
And if you like to cook Asian food, you might already have all the ingredients in your pantry!
Another advantage to homemade potsticker sauce is avoiding food allergies. You can substitute gluten free soy sauce, tamari, or coconut aminos to make sure you have gluten free potsticker sauce. Just double check the ingredients on your garlic and onion powders as some brands may add anti-caking agents that contain gluten.
This potsticker sauce is a basic, no cook recipe that is tangy and spicy. Since you’re making it from scratch, you can always adjust the flavors to your taste. Add more sriracha to turn up the heat. Or mix in some honey if you want your sauce to be sweet.

This sauce is very doable. Once you see how straight forward the recipe is, it only makes sense to make it every time instead of buy it in the bottle.
Thanks Sara, I see from your blog that I have a fellow dip lover! Dipstock is a great idea!
One person’s simple is another person’s genius. I’m actually glad you posted this because I always enjoy the dipping sauces I get with potstickers at restaurants, but couldn’t always identify it to make it at home. So much better than straight up soy sauce.
Oh good! It’s way better than straight up soy sauce. Can’t wait to hear what you think.
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I also want to add that I take my hat off to people such as yourself. I salute you.
Thanks Neil! It’s definitely a learning process but I’m really excited about it.
Where’s the print button??
It should be right under the photo in the recipe card.
I think the quantity of rice vinegar is a bit much and overwhelming. I would cut it a tablespoon or 2 and maybe add a 1/2 teaspoon honey or even a 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ginger.
Great ideas Jerry! Yes we definitely prefer a heavier tang to our sauce from the vinegar over a sweet sauce. I like the idea of adding ginger. Even some ginger powder (to keep it simple with pantry ingredients) would be good. I’m gonna try it!
